Take this pizza lunch idea and run with it to suit your child’s tastes and what food you have on hand. Use cooked frozen beef from the freezer to save time and, come to think of it, include frozen corn too! Consider making this the night before so the pizza can cool completely. I always tell my kids, to avoid food poisoning, food sent to school needs to be kept hot or cold, not somewhere in between!

Kids Cook! Get your kids involved in the kitchen by having them help out with this recipe. Here’s what they can do!* Help spread sauce on dough and place toppings. Make patterns and smiley faces with toppings to keep things fun. Kids can tear basil leaves and shred the soon-to-be, melty, ooey-gooey cheese.
